Flexible Resource Team

The flexible resource pool is a new function being run from the Cabinet Office. Its core objectives are to:

  • Help GCS deliver the annual government communications plan by filling capability gaps in essential roles;
  • Provide expertise where departments have specific short/medium term needs, and transfer skills during the assignment;
  • Allow GCS to retain top talent where acknowledged high performers are between roles, unexpectedly surplus or looking for wider developmental experience.

The GCS Flex Team is currently planning its short-term assignments for 2020/21.  If your department needs Grade 7 or SIO resource to help you meet priority campaigns, please complete the attached Request Form and send it back to gcsflex@cabinetoffice.gov.uk . A member of the Flex Team will then contact you to discuss your requirements and decide what support we can offer.
